Death of Husband: The hardest thing I've had to deal with

Posted by lind827 @lind827, Oct 27, 2020

We were married 37 years when he died 9/16 at 69 ears old. He has metastatic melanoma since 7/22/19 and was not able to handle the immunity treatments at the end, at that point lots of other problems started that brought him to death. This is the hardest thing I have had to deal with and wanted to do group therapy but no one is doing it. I feel that would be the best for me. I have started counseling but its only my 2nd time. I keep saying i want to feel him or see some sign that he is with me as everyone says it happens, but Neither for me. I think this is what is bringing me the most crying and depression. He was a great husband, father & grandfather. So sad that his 2nd grandchild is due 11/21/20 and he wont see her.

So sorry you have lost your husband. Mine died when he was 48 yrs old. It's really tough to go through but you will.

Thank you for your kind words. What a wonderful idea: do something for someone else on the day Doug died. Reaching out to others also helps the person reaching out.
